Ripping up the past!

When the A150 module website opened in preparation for the start of my course on November 4th,  having buried my head in the sand long enough, I thought that I should at least clear out all my notes from the previous 2 courses I’ve completed, to make room for more notes! Now, I don’t know about you, but my idea […]

WOAPA cd recording

  On Saturday 20th October 2012 a momentous occasion, in my opinion, occurred. Approximately 150 adults and children gathered together in the main hall of a local school to record some of their repertoire for a cd. The buzz of excitement in the hall was electric.

Letting go.

This blog is about my ‘journey’, sorry for using the ‘j’ word, and part of being able to move on is to let go. Like a lot of things in life that sounds easier than it is, something that many people will have found out as they try to make sense of this world. What things we need […]

Update on Dame Edna.

Anyone who may be reading these blogs will remember that I wrote one about making a scarecrow for a Scarecrow Festival to be held over the the August bank holiday weekend. For some bizarre reason I decided to do a ‘Dame Edna Everidge Scarecrow! Dame Edna then featured in 2 adverts on Witneytv to publicise the […]

I wasn’t going to do a blog today as after all the excitement of the Scarecrow Festival and the Abba day I thought that anything I had to say would be so boring. Today started off normal enough. I got up, had a bath and breakfast, got dressed and decided to do some housework. After dusting, hoovering […]
